Hazel Lim

b. 1975, Singapore
Lives and works in Singapore

Hazel Lim is a visual artist with a background in painting, and employs text, crafting methods, and drawings to articulate her interests in the production of narratives, notions of displacement, construction of histories and imaginary landscapes. Her research inquiries delve into aspects of painting and utilises text, paper folding and sometimes includes participation with audiences. In her current research on the aesthetics of care, and through her involvement in the Craft Council of Singapore, Hazel is employing crafting techniques such as needlework and paper craft to investigate the utility of diagrams, image making and colour theory, whilst at the same time interrogating the relationship of craft to the domestic and feminine.

Hazel currently leads the BA (Hons) programme in the McNally School of Fine Arts, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, and has taken part in exhibitions showcased in Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea, Ireland, Germany, Austria and USA. Hazel was an Associate Artist with The Substation, Singapore from 2004-2012, was commissioned for Singapore Biennale 2013, and has exhibited her work entitled ‘A Botanical and Wildlife Survey’ at the Singapore Peranakan Museum. She recently collaborated with her partner, Andreas Schlegel, on a commissioned installation work, ‘The Oort Cloud and the Blue Mountain’ for The Children Biennale 2019 at The National Gallery of Singapore, Singapore, the Kinderbiënnale 2021/2022 at Groninger Museum, Netherlands, and Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Germany.
